1. Minutes of last meeting


2. Matters arising

Update on actions from last meeting.

  • inf-unit SL6 desktop/development
    • Check what used perl-krb5-admin. We still need it for Prometheus among other things. There has been an API change. It is no longer maintained. We could take it over. Stephen has CPAN access. [Action Stephen]
  • Announce with blog article the new "longjob" script. Done.
  • Implement print quotas via Pcounter
    • Need end-user queue monitoring and job removal. [Action Craig]
  • Virtualised DICE
    • Fork two projects: to address "staff" local desktop usage to run some kind of sub-DICE; to address DICE anywhere by VM (laptops and at home) and DICE anywhere by FreeNX (for IS labs as VM is not a solution here) but need academic confirmation of actual goal. [Action Iain]
  • Redevelop User Documentation
    • Add that this needs to deliver a "maintained service" into the project plan. Done.
  • Simple KVM service
    • Add hosting of SL5 guests. Done.
  • School Database Revamp: Phase 1B & 2B
    • Add some milestones. Done.
